We had a December reception at Dobbin St, Brooklyn and DJ Kernsy (Zach) was amazing!! I think we literally had all 120 guests on the dance floor at some point during the night. Zach was incredibly easy to work with - he knew the venue extremely well and he has a ton of experience DJ'ing and MC'ing these types of events. Because we had a mix cultural marriage (Indian, Italian, Irish), Zach was able to curate a cocktail, dinner and dancing music program including everything from Indian folk-to-blues-to-90s hip-hop-to-Radiohead. He was also able to easily accommodate a last-minute program change involving me (hubby) to play my wifey her favorite Radiohead song on the guitar accompanied with a singer (guest) and bassist (guest) on the fly with the sound being incredible. Weeks leading up to the reception, we provided Zach with a small list of genres, songs, artists that would make sense for us and for our diverse crowd throughout the night. He NAILED it and completely extracted from our brains what we wanted the sound to be like including his own creativity. He's original, creative and allows couples to curate entertainment programs that don't seem canned like every other reception program. Zach helped make our evening special, original and that's all we could have asked for.
Business-side: it could not have gone any smoother. Zach is clearly experienced and comes prepared with a standard contract, insurance (for venues) and a fee-for-service that is extremely fair. Folks would be crazy not have DJ Kernsy at the top of their list. Clearly one of the best.

Hire him or you'll regret it!
Zach is an amazing person and DJ! He was laid back and easy to work with prior to and during the wedding. With Zach at the turntable, I didn't have to worry; I knew he had it covered. We sent him a Spotify list prior to the wedding so he could get an idea of what we wanted. He enhanced our list by adding his own suggestions which were perfectly chosen. He took request, and spun one hit straight into the next! And did I mention he is extremely affordable??? If you haven't booked him for your event, you need to do so immediately!

We had a great experience with Zach. He was super quick and thorough in all of our communications pre-wedding. Being a gay male-wedding, we wanted gay diva disco dancing music (no garth brooks, thanks) and he delivered! If a song wasn't vibing and people were heading to their seats, he changed the song - this kept people dancing all night long. A number of my guests complimented me on our choice of DJ.
